Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 194 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

An idea I wrote and captured for the band. Not polished. Our lead singer is a female, so it is ridiculously awesome, live.
Love sharing our metal with you fuckers. \m/

I like the crisp drums and heavy guitars. The dark content of the lyrics complements the instrumental track well. The vocals, while very good overall, came through as a little dry sometimes, and the delay effects seemed like a bit of a formulaic solution to that. Maybe some reverb, chorus effects, or other mastering tools would help them sound fuller? The ending is also a tad sudden, but other than that I have very few complaints. I love the passion of the vocals and the pace set by the guitars. Keep up the good work, B-M-I!

Thanks man, glad you dig it overall. This is just a captured idea for the tune. Basically drums, press record. No mastering at all. Volume and channel control. Basically record it 4 times, with two slightly different tones, panned hard left and right and mid left and right. Then volumes. Zero post on the guitars.

I have a pretty standard set op for doing all this. It's mostly volume control. You are absolutely correct about the formulaic solution! To eliminate the work on the vocals, I record with minor delay on, set to the tempo of the song - so I don't do any post work. Just a minor compression, which fills up the delay. Eliminates a lot of work, for the idea of it and it still passes! Thanks for the review, mang!

Always amazing stuff. Just came back to Newgrounds after many years away. You're still kicking out the jams! Huzzah!

Sounds badass bro! Cool hearing a new track from ya! \m/ Has a cinematic vibe from 0:50 and out, which is damn nice.

Not bad bro i like it

Bad-Man-Incorporated responds:

Thanks mang. Appreciated

holy shit this is awesome. Makes me happy to see you still produce. You get better and better. This is probably the best one yet. You capture every dynamic just right making it a nonstop head banger.

Bad-Man-Incorporated responds:

Glad you dig, brother. I've not put up anything that was more than record and volume, at this point, this year. Just idea phases. Glad you dig!!\m/
